I'm glad I don't have a TV in my new apartment, but if I did, I'd be watching
Law & Order: Complex Variables Unit CSI: Bourbaki Prime Suspect 24 Numb3rs! FBI Special Agent Don Eppes recruits his genius brother Charlie (ahem) who uses a mathematical equation to solve the crime! It's like Quincy, only with a slide rule instead of forceps!
"You see, the thing here is that the button for 5 doesn't light up."
"...I think I'm gonna be sick..."
Sorry, that was "Law & Order: Elevator Inspectors Unit".
Moebius Stripper takes some comfort in the results of a CBS poll. Not me. CBS isn't exactly well-known for its believable statistics. At least “Don't be ridiculous; of course not” should have been one of the possible answers.
I suppose we math folks can hope that Numb3rs will have the same effect on mathematics that CSI had on forensics and LA Law had on lawyers—those TV shows made kids more interested in their respective professions. But somehow, given Suresh's glowing review, I doubt it.
